How To Meet Up With the Cannonball Memorial Run this Weekend

The 2017 Cannonball Memorial Run is about to get underway, and I'll be riding along with two SUVs full of cops driving cross country to raise money for the families of fallen officers.

Well, that's the story, anyway.

The good news? Because this is organized by cops for cops, the route is public, the ETAs will be accurate, and everyone who wants to get behind a good cause is free to join us en route or at one of the checkpoints.

Even crazier, my fellow Cannonball outlaw Ed Bolian is also coming along.

Here's the schedule provided by organizers John Bannes & Jason Hendrix of the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department:
